McCarthy Begins Construction on New Transportation Center at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, CA

Burbank, CA (Aug. 21, 2012) – McCarthy Building Companies recently began construction on the new $72.7 million Bob Hope Airport Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC).

The facility, which broke ground on July 6, 2012, is being built to provide seamless connectivity for airport, train and bus passengers, as well as rental car customers and bicyclists. It is scheduled for completion in 2014

The 520,000-square-foot project includes construction of a three-level consolidated rental car parking structure with a car wash and fueling system; a rental car customer service building; and a ground level bus transit station for MTA, Burbank Bus, Amtrak and charter/shuttle buses.

The bus station features an open air design complemented by 16 art panels adorning all three levels of the structure.

Work also entails construction of an elevated, 1,100 foot-long moving walkway which will transport rental car customers and rail and bus passengers between the RITC and airport terminal.

 “For the Airport Authority, this project represents our ongoing commitment to improving convenience for our passengers and Southern California, while at the same time improving quality of life for our neighbors,” said Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority President Chris Holden (lower left photo).

“This project will reduce traffic and promote use of alternative public transportation while providing a state-of-the-art rental car facility for our airport patrons.”
